Oh dear - I hung Teddy Bea!!!

I should have finished putting this card together and posted it this morning - why didn't I - because Teddy Bea went on a walkabout. I searched and searched for her,through the bin, in drawers, with papers, everywhere  - I turned the place upside down - she was nowhere. 
I got so frustrated I said to myself -"Heather, switch off, sit, have a coffee and read your book" I was reading my book and all of a sudden a light came on. I was trying some ribbon through the tag I printed Bea on and trying to be tidy I'd put the ribbon away - there was poor Bea - hanging by the ribbon!!! I really had to laugh - just wish I wasn't so dozy!!


So eventually I managed to put the card together. I followed the sketch at Friday Sketchers (eeeeek -  it's nearly Friday again!! And the new Teddy Bo challenge want to see pink.


Teddy Bea is coloured in Copics, the edges inked with vintage photo distress ink and cut out using a Go Kreate label die. The papers are Pink Petticoat, the corners cut with a Martha Steward double loop punch and the flourishes with a Marianne creatable. The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, and the sentiment Wild Rose studio. Right - that's it - short and sweet - now I'll rush off and link this before I miss Friday Sketchers altogether!!

Oh dear, am I going to have to report you to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Bears LOL!, she is a very naughty bear though, turn your back on her for a minute and she's gone, Bo and her are always getting into mischief! I love your card, the colours are fab and Bea looks gorgeous hanging around amongst the flower, glad you could join us at Teddy Bo this week, hope to see you again next time. Good Luck! Colette xx

Chrissy said...

Oh! so cute Heather. Is'nt it frustrating when you had it, lost it, looked for it, and sometimes retrace your steps 10 times before the penny drops. So glad you found it,
Luv CHRISSYxx

Paula said...

Well - the moral of that story is that for the likes of you & me trying to tidy something away normally means some kind of mishap. Love those corners & the colour combination on your card but I do think she looks rather good hanging amongst the ribbons - she sort of belongs there.

Carole of Brum said...

Lol, poor Teddy Bea left hanging around! Had to smile at your tale, and i'm glad you found her, the card is simply lovely. CoB

Barb said...

Beautiful card, Heather! Teddy Bea looks stunning the way you colored her. I must say she looks especially happy sitting on the card, though there seemed to be an impish pleasure on her face as she must have known you were frantically looking for her! Very funny story and it's good to know I'm not the only one losing my images --- and my mind at times! Hugs!

Padster said...

That's absolutely lovely so glad you found Bea although she did look kind of cute hanging there lol!- thanks for joining the challenge at Teddy Bo this time
Hugs,
Debbie xx

So much for you not liking teddies eh? These are little beauties though so can't blame you for changing your mind.
